tutor, author and
shop owner specialising
in Embroidery Collage and Applique...

at the heart of my work is hand
stitching, and traditional embroidery
techniques combined with my
passion for collecting

I use my needle and
thread to both secure items in place
as well as for detail

My needle and thread act as my
drawing tool, I use
favorite and usually found threads to
illustrate chosen imagery and words
directly on to and in to my chosen
fabrics, books, papers and found items

I mainly work with paper and
fabric all of which are
this being my passion, 
my inspiration
